It's no exaggeration to say that Fire Emblem: Awakening was a major turning point for the series, both critically and commercially. Up till that release, Fire Emblem had been suffering from waning popularity and was figuratively on its last legs. Awakening was intended to be the swan song for the series unless it hit a certain sales milestone, which it ended up comfortably reaching. Now, with Fire Emblem Fates on the horizon here in the west, it seems that the series is relevant once more.
Dark Horse comics recently announced that it will be partnering with Nintendo to produce The Art of Fire Emblem: Awakening, an art book entirely dedicated to the popular 3DS game. Featuring storyboards and concept art for various events, characters, weapons, and environments, this is certainly shaping up to be the must-have item for any serious Fire Emblem fan. It's open for pre-order right now on Amazon for $39.99.
